Avanti Communications: Avanti demos Google Glassware satellite application at IBC 2014

Avanti Communications is exhibiting on stand 1.A50, IBC Conference 12th-16th Sept

LONDON--()--Avanti Communications will unveil its brand new Google Glassware satellite app at the IBC Conference in Amsterdam this week. Designed for use alongside Avanti’s proprietary ‘Avanti Mobile Assist’ app, the global satellite operator has now seamlessly integrated its satellite installation process with Google’s Glassware application.

Earlier this year, Avanti unveiled its proprietary Avanti Mobile Assist app to assist with Ka-band satellite field installations. The app optimises the installation process by supporting job allocation, antenna line-up, initiation of service and reporting for engineers. Now, using current attitude/longitude position, the Google Glassware application will source the relative location of Avanti’s HYLAS 1 and HYLAS 2 satellites, enabled by completely hands-free alignment.

Avanti Mobile Assist and Google Glassware apps work together as follows:

1. Accurate dish alignment: User first aligns the satellite dish using Augmented Reality; the satellite appears on screen and the user can carry out fine alignment by viewing the Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR); 2. Bluetooth / WiFi connection: User connects to the Avanti Mobile Assist app via Bluetooth to receive real-time updates on the current signal quality of the terminal; the AMA app receives signal quality information from the terminal via WiFi; 3. Signal Noise Ratio: SNR is displayed both as a numerical value in the upper right hand side and a signal bar on the left hand side, displaying current signal quality in red/yellow/green and the current maximum signal strength with a slight opacity.

David Bestwick, Technical Director at Avanti Communications, commented: “Avanti uses leading technologies and applications to deliver high quality services to customers the world over. Integration with the Google Glassware is further evidence of the flexibility of our technology, supporting both Hughes and iDirect terminals. We hope visitors to the stand at IBC 2014 enjoy the demo.”
